Resources for Patients and Physicians

The Washington State Medical Association is leading the discussion in Washington state on the importance of conversations between physicians and their patients and giving physicians the tools to help patients make informed health care decisions. The WSMA's Know Your Choices - Ask Your Doctor initiative focuses on getting patients the right care, at the right place, at the right time.

Know Your Choices - Ask Your Doctor consists of three campaigns: Choosing Wisely®, ER is for Emergencies and End-of-Life Resources. Use the sidebar on the left to explore the physician and patient resources available for each.
